Delivering optimized technology capabilities to different communities is key to a successful public cloud offering”, said Nimbix Chief Technology Officer Leo Reiter. “With this unified approach, Nimbix delivers discrete product capabilities to different audiences while maximizing value to all parties with the underlying power of the JARVICE platform.”
Going forward, Nimbix will focus on three key capabilities – JARVICE Compute for high performance processing, including Machine Learning, AI and HPC workloads; PushToCompute for application developers creating and monetizing high performance workflows; and MaterialCompute, a brand new intuitive user interface, featuring the industry’s largest high performance application marketplace available from a cloud provider.
Nimbix’s JARVICE platform powers the Nimbix Cloud and is capable of processing massively parallel turnkey workflows ranging from enterprise simulation to machine learning and serving all major industries and organizations. Unlike other cloud providers who leverage virtualization technology to provide slices of a physical machines to users, JARVICE delivers high performance computation on bare-metal supercomputing systems using Nimbix’s patented Reconfigurable Cloud Computing technology and fully containerized application components for agility and security. JARVICE powers the Nimbix Cloud and is also available as a product for both hosted and on-premises private cloud deployments.
PushToCompute, released in September of 2016, is the fastest, easiest way for developers to onboard commercial or open source compute-intensive applications into the cloud. Using the industry standard Docker format, PushToCompute seamlessly interfaces with major third party registries such as Docker Hub, Google Container Registry, and others, as well as private registries. PushToCompute is available as a subscription service and will expand to include build capabilities for both x86 and POWER architectures in the first half of 2017. With these new capabilities PushToCompute will offer end to end continuous integration as well as continuous delivery services for developers of compute intensive workflows such as machine learning and other complex algorithms. Once deployed, these workflows can be made available in the public marketplace for monetization in an on-demand fashion.
MaterialCompute, Nimbix’s newest offering, sets a new standard for ease of use and accessibility of high-end computing services. MaterialCompute aims to reduce clicks, improve flows, and optimize display on both desktop and mobile devices. With MaterialCompute, users choose applications and workflows from the marketplace and execute these on the Nimbix Cloud at any scale, from any network, on any device, and leveraging any advanced computing technologies such as the latest GPUs from NVIDIA and FPGAs from Xilinx. Developers can also leverage MaterialCompute to create and manage applications, and interface seamlessly to PushToCompute mechanisms.
JARVICE and PushToCompute are available with both on-demand and subscription pricing. MaterialCompute will be available for public access in February 2017 and will serve as the primary front-end for all Nimbix Cloud services.
